cutie pie finished object

Isn't he a cute little owl? It's a crochet pattern, from, "Crochet Owl(Talons)", by momwithahook.

Also today, I finished winding my Ultra Alpaca yarn into balls, then I cast on for the Elizabeth Zimmermann baby sweater from Knitter's Almanac. I think I'm doing it the way the instructions read, instead of switching it to have the sleeves knit in the round. I want to see how EZ made this work, and I can think it better if I actually do it, rather than just read it. And, I don't really like garter stitch, but if when working on straight needles, it is nice not to have to purl.
